Hi Guys,  I cannot believe I have not been able to find a solution to such a simple request.  Have had 3 lots of mac keyboards but after about 12 months, some keys don't work. get them cleaned at apple shop, works for couple of weeks, and back to nothing.  A bit hard financially to keep buying new keyboards every 12 months.  


So bought this microsoft wireless 3050.  Highly recommended but the number keypad will not work.  I can use the / * - enter keys but not the numbers.  Yes i have looked at all simple you tube forums that show how to change the Control / Command but the rest is too confusing for an old bugger like me.


Have reset keyboard a few times but still nothing.  obviously all other buttons work fantastic




 Please help , if you can.   AND  yes I have tried the num lock button which in apple land is known as clear button.
